Heute möchten wir Euch die am Freitag erschiene neuste Single „Sad Cinderella“ von Marissa Nadler, im Original geschrieben von Townes Van Zandt, aus dem am 01.07. digital erscheinenden „Songs of Townes Van Zandt Vol III“ Album feat. Amenra, Cave In & Marissa Nadler ans Herz legen.
Marissa Nadler interpretiert diesen Townes Van Zandt Song mit einem volleren Sound, der zu dem Arrangement passt, aber wärmer und mit einem Sci-Fi-Soundtrack-Gefühl versehen ist, weicher und scheinbar trauriger als das leicht fatalistische Original.
Zusätzlich zur Single erschien ein Lyric Video, welches von dem englischen Musikblog The Sleeping Shaman präsentiert wurde.
At Shaman HQ we have a long-standing history with the singer songwriter Townes Van Zandt. Since its inception back in 2012, it’s been quite an emotional voyage to see the impact this outstanding artist has on our peers, which has been forever immortalised by My Proud Mountain and Neurot Recordings in the form of the Songs Of Townes Van Zandt series.
The eight year hiatus between the release of Vol. 2 and Vol. 3 has been well worth the wait as this issue see’s Marissa Nadler, Amenra and Cave In giving their own take on the legends music, and today it’s our absolute pleasure to bring you the lyric video for Marissa Nadler’s reimagining of Sad Cinderella.
As Mark said in his review ‘Marissa’s second track Sad Cinderella has a fuller sound to match the busier arrangement, but here it is more warmer and injected with a sci-fi soundtrack sensation, softer and seemingly more sorrowful than the slightly fatalistic original‘.

More On Songs Of Townes Van Zandt Vol. III
Beloved American singer-songwriter Townes Van Zandt passed away at the age of 52 on January 1st, 1997, in Mount Juliet, Tennessee. His music touches people. Many believe he was a genius, and sing his sad, brilliant songs. Imagine if he was still creating music, in a time when artists themselves decide what to release and when to do it – something that songwriters of his era often were unable to do.
In 2012, the label My Proud Mountain was established specifically for the purpose or releasing the first Songs Of Townes Van Zandt LP, to which the singers and guitarists of the band Neurosis – Scott Kelly and Steve Von Till – and Saint Vitus/The Obsessed’s Scott ‘Wino’ Weinrich contributed nine Van Zandt songs. The goal was to introduce these brilliant works to fans who may have never heard the originals, but through the interpretation of the songs through the mentioned musicians, would lead them to do so.
In 2014, Songs Of Townes Van Zandt Vol. II carried on the tradition, this time featuring songs from John Baizley of Baroness, Nate Hall of US Christmas, and Mike Scheidt of Yob.
And now in 2022 My Proud Mountain once again in conjunction with Neurot Recordings announces the third record of the Songs Of Townes Van Zandt series, which was started in 2012, featuring various artists covering the works of beloved American singer-songwriter Townes Van Zandt. Songs Of Townes Van Zandt Vol. III features new renditions of nine classic tracks as interpreted by Amenra, Cave In, and Marissa Nadler.
Steve Brodsky of Cave In stated about being part of the record, ‘In the winter of 2010, I did a solo tour with Scott Kelly of Neurosis and Bob Wayne. It was the three of us and Ansgar Glade traveling in Bob’s ‘green machine’ van around the UK and Ireland. At every show, Scott played the song ‘Caroline’ and each time I heard it, I found myself enraptured. This was my introduction to Townes Van Zandt. Pretty cool that ten years later, Ansgar has given me and CAVE IN this great opportunity to show our love for TVZ’s music.’
